Sorry to be a party pooper but dual poles are not the way to go IMHO.

The way of the wayfarer has always been to be an affordable boat for an audience from 8 to 88. I don’t see how dual poles fit in that KISS philosophy.
Maybe we should ban dual poles so everyone, even a low budget beginner, can have a shot at the National title?
I don’t see how dual poles help us to race on an even playing field.

Or maybe I have it all wrong and we should not only add dual poles, but a trapeze as well? After all a trapeze isn’t an expensive thing at all, everyone can afford one even an 88 year old…….
